International Driving Permit

An International Driving Permit (IDP) allows an individual to drive their private motor vehicle in another nation only when accompanied by a valid license from their country. The document is a multi language translation of ones own existing driver’s license, complete with photograph and vital statistics. It is not a license to operate a motor vehicle on its own.

Within the European Union an EU-format license of one member state is recognised in all other member states without the need for an IDP. Therefore, if you hold an EU license you do not need a IDP.
